Rosalina & Luma's definitely in the group of stronger characters. A favorite Mario character being super good? Sweet. :)
"So that’s definitely Nintendo sort of appealing to casuals, but that takes away a huge aspect of trying to be strategic in that game."
I disagree. Sure, edge-hogging has gotten me free KOs at times, but when I think about it, it's not as strategic in comparison to the newer mechanic. You'll just have to adapt to it and find ways around it. Understand what works, what doesn't work, and get creative. As a matter of fact, I like it better. From all of the experience I've had, there are two things important to the new mechanic that can really help you out:
1. If they re-grab the ledge without getting hit or stepping on a platform, they won't have any invincibility.
2. You can purposely grab on to the ledge immediately after they do to force them off of it.
With these two things in mind, you won't believe how many KOs I've gotten. Ya just gotta think differently, and see how you can use your options. It is the only way you can tip the scales! Ahaha. Haha. Ah...



StaticWind commented on Video: Did You Know Gaming Explores Cancelled ...:

Well, I've always been fine with the soccer and other sports spin-offs, so I might have liked that one. I'm still waiting for a new Mario Strikers. :3
Haha, those animations were quite funny to see. I never thought I'd see Yoshi slam his own kind to the ground like that.



StaticWind commented on The Father Of Video Games Ralph H. Baer Passes...:

Wow, that's unfortunate. Perhaps I'm too young, as I was not aware of his contributions to the gaming industry, but hearing about him now and what he did gives me some appreciation for him.
Please do rest in piece. I didn't know of your contributions until today, but they will be remembered.



StaticWind commented on Video: Two Smash Bros. Instructional Videos to...:

Oh, wow. I never knew, or noticed, that DI involves perpendicular inputs. That makes a whole lot more sense for me.
As for Nintendo's video, well, I guess they did show new players how to play, but the How to Play video in the game probably does more than that in about the same time frame. :P



StaticWind commented on Child of Light's Creative Director Paints a Pi...:

How interesting — I was just thinking about this game in class today. I'm very pleased to hear it was profitable! It is overall one of my favorite games, and it even introduced me to a pretty awesome composer (Cœur de pirate). I would certainly love a sequel of sorts. :)
P.S: I still would have loved to have Valiant Hearts on the Wii U. :P



StaticWind commented on Nintendo Joins "Creative Endorsement Program" ...:

That's interesting. Just for the "content creators that produce the most popular videos", though? Bummer, I guess.
I'm still waiting to see what they'll do about the whole YouTube thing. I have fun uploading Nintendo stuff, so I'd like to see what they come up with. :)



StaticWind commented on 10-Year-Old Gamer Thrashes the Competition at ...:

I saw it this morning, and it was nice to see. I later see everyone talking about how it's probably fake, and now I'm skeptical. :(
I'm just going to lurk around and watch what people say about this for a while. If I can just lurk around Smashboards and Reddit for a little while longer. . .



StaticWind commented on Eiji Aonuma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been...:

"So although we’ve been working on the game for quite some time, we didn't want to say it was being developed until we were at a point where we could proudly say that this is not going to be just another remake and that it's going to be worth your time."
That's great to hear. When I bought OoT 3D and finished it, I left feeling that a bit more could have been done with it, somehow. Now that I actually have to take better care of how I use money, I was indecisive a while ago about whether I should get this or not. For now, I'll just continue waiting to see what new features they show off.



StaticWind commented on New Study Finds No Connection Between Video Ga...:

Nice. A link would be nice, too. I'm sure plenty of people have figured as such, though. There's quite a bit to say revolving around the whole "video games cause violence" topic. All in all, I've been tired of 'em focusing on something so insignificant compared to bigger problems. :(
@Prime "tekken triple tournament 10"
Is it really that hard to figure out that he's kidding?



StaticWind commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Online Braw...:

Wha?! Wow, that's nuts! Hopefully it gets fixed soon. I think I'll be fine, since I haven't gotten a ban or anything yet. I've had to try a bit hard sometimes to not quit matches with a ton of lag, though. I mean, you get infractions if you SD on purpose, exit the match, or not move at all, right? :(
@RedKnightXIII Little Mac's fine. I don't think he needs to be nerfed or anything. He's the best on flat stages, and unfortunately there aren't any platform stages in For Glory (which would have been nice), so you'll have to pay close attention and find other ways to get him. Always fight near the ledge, or somethin'. :P



StaticWind commented on Video: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Opening Cin...:

I'm waiting for the day I get the game to see it. I've spoiled myself quite enough!
I'm hearing it's just full of recycled clips and gameplay. Honestly, with all of the work and effort they already put in (especially with character trailers), I don't mind. I don't think I'd call it "lazy".



StaticWind commented on Feature: Breaking Down Over 50 Must-See Things...:

I'm mostly excited for 8-Player Smash, the music options, and just about everything about the online modes. Words seriously can't describe how much I can't wait for the Wii U version! I really can't.
Heck, I've even been thinking on skipping out on a demo if they give one. That way, I keep my hype meter to its maximum and I can take joy in being awed when I finally slide that disc in. :D



StaticWind commented on Mewtwo Returns to Super Smash Bros., Ridley an...:

@Iggly Same here. This Direct is too much for my simple mind to comprehend.
It's really awesome that Mewtwo fans got what they really wanted. It's good to see that a lot of people are satisfied. I honestly can't get into Pokemon for the life of me, but I think I can look forward to Mewtwo. :)
In addition, I hope this may pave way for future characters to arrive. They have as much time as they can to work on 'em, too! Personally, I'm fully satisfied with the game's content already (that we know of), but I welcome anything that'll extend the game's life — not that I won't always play it to begin with!
On a side note, I wonder if Smashboards crashed at this announcement. :D



StaticWind commented on Tourneys and Official Tourneys Giving Super Sm...:

@Jazzer94 sniff It's everything I ever dreamed of...
Jokes aside, this is really great news! I was seriously hoping that they'd do this so I wouldn't have to add friend codes for whoever I wanted to battle. Plus, I'm super excited about being able to play with the NL community again and NOT get my butt handed to me in Mario Kart.
This is the feature I've looked forward to the most, and I got it. Thank you so much, Nintendo! :)



StaticWind commented on Bigger Stages, Dual-Plane Battles and Danger Z...:

I jumped for joy when I saw the DKCR stage and its mechanics. I was slightly worried that they wouldn't have used one. I hope they add music from Tropical Freeze, too! The game has some of the best soundtracks you'll ever hear.
On the main topic, those larger stages look like fun! Big Battlefield looks kinda fun to use out of 8 Player Smash, so I hope that's an option.



StaticWind commented on 8 Player Smash Mode Confirmed For Wii U Super ...:

6, 7, and 8 players?! This is great! I mean, REALLY great news! I'm planning a Smash party for friends the day after the game releases, so with how many controller options we have, no one has to wait anymore! If we can still do Team Battles with 8 Player Smash, that'd be even better! :D



StaticWind commented on Round Table: Let's Talk Super Smash Bros. For ...:

I feel that they'd do a bit more for the online play for the Wii U version (I hope). I'd rather not have voice chat for anonymous play, but playing with friends definitely should be an option for those who do. Personally, I don't care very much for voice chat.
I was also hoping that they'd do something like Mario Kart 8 communities, tournaments, and whatnot so you don't have to add people as friends just to play with them.
I agree with Lewis. I control things pretty normally most of the time, but I should be taking better care to not go overboard and mash the circle pad so much. :D



StaticWind commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Oh, gee. What d'ya know? There's school on Thursday!
Oh, gee! Would you look at that? I had a dream that I'd be sick that day. I wonder if this means anything! :D
Seriously, though. It sucks that every single time there's some sort of live broadcast, it's either during school or a really inconvenient time. Usually it's hard for me to reach the finished video without coming across a quick glance of spoilers, either. I wonder if this has anything to do with my constant bad luck. :(



StaticWind commented on Feature: Ari Pulkkinen's Quest to Turn the Vol...:

Great article! Video game music has always been an important thing to me. It's the only reason why I picked up the piano in the 7th grade. I spent a lot of time looking up Synthesia YouTube videos, and once I could play "Dire, Dire Docks" and a simplified "Frozen Hillside", my interest in playing other VGM on other instruments skyrocketed from there! I wouldn't call myself much of a composer right now, but now I tend to work on VGM renditions and even make my own stuff once in a while.
You know, I have hopes that VGM can someday become more accepted. I sort of try to spread that kind of fondness when I play at talent shows and stuff. It makes me happy when someone gets super surprised when I tell them the music came from a video game. :D
I probably haven't noticed much of Pulkkinen's work yet, so I'll probably listen later. I can't say I agree too much with his statements concerning the whole "hit-tracks = new audiences" thing, but I'd love to be able to buy soundtracks freely someday!



StaticWind commented on Ubisoft To Release Petz Beach And Petz Country...:

Ah, I can already see it now...
"We decided that we are going back on 3DS exclusivity and porting these new iterations to the PlayStation Portable to maximize availability. Additionally, the 3DS versions will not receive the long awaited Scuba Diving and Battleship DLCs, so we are very sorry. Please know that we will work as hard as we can to make the 3DS versions the best ones!"
@sillygostly 11/10. Will remember forever. :D



StaticWind commented on Gallery: Enjoy a Cuteness Overload in These Ca...:

@JaxonH Whoops! Perhaps I should have been more specific. Sorry.
I meant the Wii U version. Believe me, that game comes before anything else — I've waited too long for it! I meant to say that the Wii U version shouldn't be the last game I buy this year, as I didn't plan on buying anything else because of so much money spending. Captain Toad is just capturing my interests more than before. ^^



StaticWind commented on Video: Catch Up With Nintendo's Super Smash Br...:

Ah, it would have been great to compete in the closest one near me. Gah, curse those "first come, first serve" rules!
I swear, I'll be there plenty of hours earlier if they do one for the Wii U version. I think I could have at least survived a good while before I lose. :D
